Nestled in the awe-inspiring Yoho National Park, Emerald Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in British Columbia. Surrounded by lush forests and soaring mountain ranges, it shimmers a brilliant emerald green in the sunlight.
For Metro Vancouverites looking to escape the daily grind, a secluded resort located lakeside offers unparalleled tranquillity in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
The rustic Emerald Lake Lodge is located near the Albertan border in Field and accommodates up to 200 guests on the property's 13-acre peninsula.
A stay at the lodge also takes you on a journey back in time, "with its century-old fireplaces and an oak bar salvaged from an 1890’s Yukon saloon."
There are 24 cabin-style buildings, and rooms feature private baths, balconies and wood-burning fieldstone fireplaces. They also offer a state-of-the-art steel outdoor hot tub, which has a stunning mountain view and is the perfect place to unwind.
Guests hoping to wake up to sweeping views of Emerald Lake will want to book a "lake view room," which offers a private balcony overlooking the lake. For an upgrade, the suites also offer views of the lake.
The Point Cabin, the lodge’s most exclusive suite, features a master bedroom with a king-size bed and a spacious living area. It also comes equipped with a whirlpool bath, a dining area, and a wrap-around balcony offering a premier view of Emerald Lake.
Thinking of bringing Fido on your getaway? The lodge offers pet-friendly accommodations, although extra charges may apply.
In addition to Emerald Lake Lodge, Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts runs two other rustic mountain lodges in the Canadian Rockies: Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff and Deer Lodge in Lake Louise. The company also runs the Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch, The Lake House Restaurant and Urban Butcher in Calgary.
